    I feel you. The Hasbro hands/feet don't work for me, but they are the best that Hasbro has ever done with combiner hands/feet. I just have stupid high "standards" when it comes to combiners due to 3p output. :)

    Not bad. Questions, 1 does it come in black or white? 2 Can they hold Superion's gun and Powerglide? 3 Price? date?

    Didn't even realize the guns turned into the hands/feet. Decently clever. However, I'd take a set of hands/feet that didn't transform if it kept the price low. I'll never use the gun modes. I'm one of those weirdos that if perfectly fine setting accessories to the side and not have some OCD to have everything plug onto it in all modes.

    I like the set, the size of the feet help balance out the gorilla arms making them look more proportional. There is some degree of ankle tilt, you can see it on Dragstip. As for the thighs just put Sky Dive and Air Raids guns on them and for Silverbolt's hands plug in Alpha Bravo's and Fire Flight's guns and have them angled to act as supports. Hoping the set comes in white, but black will do in a pinch.

    I am seriously considering getting the Aerialbots, and this set makes some nice improvements! Shame we can't get all the Aerialbots out in one wave though! Poor Drag Strip looks so out of place there.

    It makes sense to buy a Superion.

    Fair enough. Fixed. :D 

    Edit: Or at least, I tried to. Seems like it didn't work. Could a mod help please?

    The relative speed at which the prototypes for these came out contrasted with PE's notoriety for long wait times between design sketches and prototype makes me wonder if this was why we haven't seen a prototype for Deathstalker yet.

    Why are these classified as a set for Superion? They're just hands and feet, which *should* be standard to any of the forthcoming combiner sets. (esp if the set comes in black)

    Also, do all the guns really form the hands/feet? It seems so, but if all parts form such nice hands/feet... that's impressive.

    Those bits aside... here's hoping they're priced as nicely as the Megatron/Bludgeon kits were... and maybe that we see more parts to fix their proportions up a bit, or add G1 chest shields.

    These look very nice! Depending on the price, I just may have to buy a set for every Combiner Wars combiner that comes out.

    Leave it to a 3P company to make an "ok" Hasbro product look good. Now....if they do the same for Menasor, then they would have truly polished a giant turd.

    This is for Menasor too. They will probably release in in different colors.

    That's an interesting point, Scale! :)  I would love to put a set of these on that Energon Devastator!!!! A whole bunch of Hasbro combiners could use these appendages...

    I'm actually surprised to like these so much. The fact that they transform into weapons is a nice bonus, IMO, as most hands and feet just become useless kibble. I see these as almost mini-cons! :D  I hope the price isn't crazy... For a reasonable price or bulk purchase option, I would get several of these! :thumb

    The feet look too tall and the hands just don't fit the look. If these help get people to buy combiner wars than go for it.

    Forgot for a moment, Menasor's hands and feet are purple, so the Menasor edition will work on Classic Devstator too!

    Let's see

    Black - Superion (Combiner Wars deco), Defensor, Landcross, Guard City, Battle Gaia
    Purple - Menasor, Devastator, Abominus
    Silver - Bruticus, Predaking
    White - Superion (G1 deco)
    Red - Computron
    Pink - Piranacon

    So the first release will probable be black, then purple?

    This is what they should have come with! HasTak leaves the door open for 3P profits again.

    I'm buying this as I hate the hands and feet that it the CW figures come with.
